According to reports, she was arguing with Jake yesterday when their car was involved in an accident.
That’s according to his mother, Anita Walsh, who expressed her concern to prosecutors investigating the accident that killed her son in Bodrum, Turkey.
She told them that her son was an experienced driver and would not have lost control of their Mercedes.
A source at the Bodrum Prosecutor’s Office said: “She told us that he may have argued with Jasmine, which is why the car crashed.”
The story: Jake (right) became famous when he dated Lauren (left) when she appeared on The Only Way Is Essex, Dancing on Ice and Celebrity Big Brother. The couple first got together in 2012 but finally split in 2016 (pictured in 2013)
Mercedes left the mountain road and overturned in a ditch.
Jake died at the scene.
Jasmine suffered serious injuries to her arm, but pulled herself from the wreckage to get help.
Prosecutors are investigating whether Jake was driving drunk. The pair got into an argument outside the club at 3am, shortly before Sunday’s crash.
Jake and Jasmine are believed to have gotten together in May last year before she revealed their relationship on Instagram in December in a clip which showed the pair kissing.

But she broke up with him just a month after he was reportedly caught ‘doing the bachelor’ while on holiday in Dubai and left a club alone with Love Island ex Ellie Jones.
The couple were believed to have split up when the accident happened on Sunday. Friends say they are not sure what the pair were doing together in Turkey, but they may have been there to sign some kind of commercial deal.
A source told MailOnline: ‘This is a complete tragedy and a complete loss of life. Everyone is shocked and hope that Jasmine will make a full recovery.”
Friends close to Lauren told MailOnline that the pregnant mother-of-one was “devastated” by Jake’s untimely death.
Speaking to The Sun, another source added: “It appears Jake was driving when he lost control of the car and it went off the cliff.”
MailOnline has contacted TOWIE and representatives for Yazmin for further comment.
